    Just wondering if anyone in the UK forum has used fasttech.com

    The reason for asking is, I've been looking at the prices for their Vamo and it seems a lot cheaper than most UK vendors. Not really worried about the quality, but the chance of having to pay extra for import duty and vat etc.
    I know RM generally charge a handling fee. My last order from USA incurred a vat and handling fee, ended up paying an extra £23 for my Vmod - but all the UK vendors were out of stock.

    So anyone have any experience ordering from fasttech and did you have to pay any extras to get your kit ???

    Great company, no shipping costs, can pay by PayPal.

    My last order had a delivery surcharge to upgrade to airmail of $0.57

    Thanks for the replies, it's always good to get opinions from others before ordering.

    I think I will order the Vamo and see if I get charged any vat or import duties, I'd better not tell the Wife though :D

    just ordered me a k100.. i highly doubt you'll have to pay any tax or vat on anything from them as china tend to put the value of the goods very low on the deceleration forms and always send them as gifts :p ( and im also not telling the missis hahahah )

    Think you would be really unlucky to get hit by any duties.

    I've ordered a few things from them and they have taken a few weeks to arrive but always got through no problem.

    Just don't order a lot of stuff at once as a big box is more likely to attract attention.

    If you are getting a kit I'd also be wary of the batteries and charger - I've read lots of posts saying that they are generally low quality.

    I don't mind cheap mods but things that could a)Blow up in my face or b)Burn my house down I feel happier spending a few extra quid for peace of mind.

    What the Wife doesn't know about can't be used in the divorce court - that's what my Dad used to say :laugh:

    I just didn't want to get stung like I did with my last order from the USA, the vat was a killer.

    I always tend to get batteries and chargers from UK sources, saves having to get a UK adaptor. But thanks for the advise, like you say it's better to spend a few quid more and know you'll be safe :D

    Not too sure to be honest.

    But if it doesn't fit, a cheap ego to 510 connector should sort things out.

    I was replying to Pezz's comment on battery quality, I quoted it in my post.

    I think the EVOD needs the ego/510 adaptor, but I haven't got either a Vamo or a lava tube so I can't be sure.
